Untouched wilderness and holistic health come together for a sensational getaway at Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland. Experience hill walking, foraging, forest bathing and fishing with the estate’s sweeping 850-acre grounds and beyond.
The programme creates a modern spin on the practice of mindfulness. The powers of nature can significantly improve mental and physical health, therefore this memorable 2-night retreat invites you to connect with the natural rhythm of Scottish wilderness and harness the healing power of nature.
The retreat uses learnings from Shinto and western practices, encouraging moments of quiet contemplation in between insightful classes and experiences.
Day 1: Pranayama, waterfall bathing and stargazing
